Garden fairies here. We are garden fairies and we are going to answer the question being asked by gardeners everywhere. "What happens to poinsettias left in the stores over Christmas?" Well, we garden fairies have the answer. We've known forever but have just been given permission from the North Pole headquarters to share this information with those who wonder and ask. What happens is that on Christmas Day, when all the stores are closed, Santa's elves sneak in and gather up all the … [Read more...] about Garden Fairies Reveal Christmas Secrets
Garden fairies here. We are garden fairies and we have been debating whether or not Carol has lost her mind. We are divided on this and decided we would post here so people could weigh in. Some of us, and we won't say which some of us as we do not want to unduly influence anyone's opinions, think Carol has lost her mind because she brought home a new clover called Trifolium repens 'Coco Mint'. (See picture.) Oh yes, it is that Trifolium repens, which is more commonly known as Dutch white … [Read more...] about Garden Fairies Debate: Has Carol Lost Her Mind?

Garden fairies here. We are garden fairies and no, we did not take a picture from last spring to post on this blog post. This is a picture of autumn flowering crocuses which are in bloom right now.

We don't know what Carol does but we do not see her as often as we should be seeing her in the garden because … [Read more...] about Garden fairies post again
No one knew who put up the sign, but when the garden fairies woke up shivering, they saw it, set at an angle so the snow stuck to it. Honoria Hellebore wiped the snow off and read it to everyone gathered around. "The celebration of the end of winter has been cancelled due to snow." When word of the cancellation reached Granny Gus McGarden out in the Vegetable Garden Cathedral, she nodded knowingly. She had told the flower fairies to not get too excited by the warm weather. She knew. All the … [Read more...] about Garden Fairies Cancel Celebration of End of Winter
Garden fairies here. We are garden fairies and we have decided to post on Friday instead of our usual Sunday because Carol is lazy. That's right. We said it. She's lazy. She has barely lifted a finger to do garden clean up around here. Though, come to think of it, she has cleared off the beds in the Vegetable Garden Cathedral and put a nice layer of leaves and grass clippings on top of them. We've been hearing rumors that she's going to tear apart the three compost bins that are full of … [Read more...] about Garden fairies discuss someone’s laziness.
